My 14 year old had at least one incident where she was tense all the time and said don't touch me.
she's very private so I don't know what happened .
She was failing in almost all her classes due to a lot of sickness and now that she is home schooled she is not obviously.
But motivation is so hard for her!! I'm unemployed right now and hope to get a job soon.
Any home school moms of teens out there???
thanks

daughter and moods

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My daughter has had her 2nd period now and she acts horrible. She says things like "this is how I am so deal with it". SAY WHAT? How would you respond?

She hardly talks about her feelings and she has this thing about not being touched. I can't help feeling like she had an experience at her former school she WON'T talk about. When I say things like "the world won't revolve around you having your period", she says something like "I never said I did". She does that al lot for some reason.
She's been to a few counselling sessions and nothing really comes of it and she refused to go the last one she was going to(maybe 3x)

Now she can be nice but it's few and far between it seems. Right now she is homeschooled since Feb following an incident at her former school. She has until May to decide if this is going to work out. One thing I hate is her dawdling.

I heard an interesting statement from Joel Osteen last night: some people delay making a decision because they don't want the responsibility of that decision.

One thing I'm trying to work on is not repeating what I've asked her to do. Funny thing, if I don't, I think she won't do whatever she needs to do. But if I'm too involved it's like I don't trust her to do it herself. I know she is a bright girl in years past. I just don't know how to help her now. Her dad is at home but doesn't get involved that much. Her grades have improved in 2 months we've been home. I want to eventually go to work but I want to finish the home school in May with her. This summer I'd like her to get evaluated for depression and anxiety, since it runs in my family.

She got a notification from a teacher that if she does not do her composition work, she will not be promoted to the next grade. Part of me feels she should not be allowed to pass to 9th grade, because she is so isolated and has her attitudes, I'm not really sure.
Thanks for listening.
